How to create an Account.

On Tobar your username is your email address.  All users using the new Tobar platform for the first time are required to change their password. Click to reset your password at the login screen (

A password reset email will be sent to you, once you have an account already on the system. Please make sure to check your spam folders for this email.

If this email does not arrive, it is likely that an account does not exist for this email address.

You can try create a new account and the system will tell you if an account already exists for that email address. If this occurs you should reset your password.

All electronic certificates are issued automatically via email from the learning portal when courses are fully processed by the course tutor.  

Your certificate is attached to your profile on Tobar so please login to Tobar and go to the “My Achievements” section of your Dashboard, and at the bottom of the page there is a link to your certificates. 

Please note that this only refers to certificates issued for the new ICGG course and for other courses after 2023. Previous course certs are not compatible with this functionality.  

Certificates prior to 2018 when we initiated e-certification are not available through Tobar as these would only have been issued in hard copy.  


Members are asked to sync your Tobar account with your Foireann account in order for their learning to be displayed in the same place as thier membership information.  To do this, click on the green button on the top of the page in Tobar "Foireann Connect".  If this button is not visible, then the accounts are already synchronised. 

See here for a guide:

Qualifications are displayed in the Profile section of Foireann under "Qualifications & Vetting". 

Before the site upgrade, we manually mapped 50k Tobar accounts with the corresponding Foireann accounts. These were accounts for which we were positively able to identify the same user on both systems. The remainder of the accounts were not clearly identifiable as the same person so these need to be synced individually by the member. For those accounts already synced, there is no Green button visible – indicating that their Tobar account is already synced to a Foireann account.

If qualifications are not showing in Foireann there could be a couple of reasons for this:

Camogie/LGFA coaching qualifications prior to 2023 were not managed on Tobar and so Tobar has no records for these courses to pass to Foireann. It is not possible to upload retrospective qualifications to Tobar at this time. Going forward these courses are managed by Tobar but the records for these retrospective courses are still kept by Camogie/LGFA and SportIreland.

GAA coaching qualifications prior to 2013 were not managed on Tobar and cannot be communicated to Foireann. 

Safeguarding face to face courses prior to 2023 were not manged by Tobar.  These records are maintained in the National Childrens Office.

Some members have multiple Foireann accounts. Your Tobar account may be synced to one of these accounts but it is not the same account you are accessing. The advice from Foireann is that members request their club to merge their multiple Foireann accounts so that all their information is in the one place.

Some members have multiple Tobar accounts and have their learning spread across the multiple accounts.  It is possible to sync more than 1 Tobar account to a single Foireann account. Please only sync a Tobar account with the corresonding Foireann account, i.e. you should not try to sync a tobar account with a multiple user Foireann account.  

Make sure you toggle the "Show current only" button to off to show all qualifications passed to Foireann.  

The email you received was an automated reminder from the safeguarding course that is about to expire. It does not take into account any subsequent course you may have completed so if you have already updated your safeguarding, you can ignore the email.

No. Tobar is a learning platform. For membership and other games management related information you should go to Foireann.


You can search for a course using the new filter based navigation feature in Tobar.  First select the relevant category, e.g. coach, then you can narrow down your search using Resource type and selcting "Course".

Some courses are restricted to a specific cohort of people and the coordinator applies an enrolment key to ensure the course numbers are limited to that cohort.  If the coordinator has applied an enrolment key then they will communicate this to the expected participants with the course details.  Please check with your coordinator or Club for this enrolment key.
